Goalkeeper is back to his best, insists Wenger


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his number-one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has re-found his best form.

The Gunners boss dropped the Polish international at the end of last season and claimed it was because he was mentally unfit after a tough and challenging season, but Wenger has quickly made him the number-one again for this season.

Despite conceding four goals in two games in the Premier League, Szczesny kept two impressive clean-sheets against Fenerbache in the Champions League qualifier and the shot-stopper made numerous saves in the second leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger was talking to the club’s official website and he has admitted that the Pole is back to his best and over the problems of last season.

“He is over the problems he had last season,” the boss said. “He had a dip in form, but has come back at the end of the season with good form and a good run, overall for me he is back to his best.

“We forget he is a boy who is only in his third season in the Premier League. He is only 23, for a goalkeeper that is very young.

“He was third then last season fourth in the Premier League, for such a young goalkeeper, that is not a bad achievement.

“I am sure you will see a great season from Szczesny, and I rate Fabianski very highly, which is why I think we have two very good goalkeepers.”
